What’s Rasterize…?

Here we go again…if you’re a regular visitor to my blog, you’d notice one thing…some of the blue is starting to bleed grey…or greyish in hue. Yeah…that’s my doing. I’m in the process of changing my blog layout again. This time with the full…well…more or less full power of photoshop behind me. All I can say after all this time designing my own blog is this.

I have no idea what I’m doing.

I mean…it’s not like I take this stuff in college anyway. I started using photoshop about 6 years ago when I was playing one of those online games. What was it called…oh yes…Utopia. Anyway…I used to spend my time designing the banners for my kingdom (don’t ask if you don’t know…just nod and pretend that you know) and I pretty much got started on photoshop that way.

Now 6 years later and God knows how many times I’ve used photoshop…I’m still stuck with pretty much the same things I knew back then. Not much of an improvement ain’t it?

Until now.

Well…thanks to Chooki for pointing it out, I’ve been going over the photoshop tutorials like hell. For the most part everything is pretty easy…until I get to the intergrating it into the blog part…and oh God…creating the buttons. What would I do for some sense of decent transparency. Do I use PNG or GIF? I don’t know…I just need a little transparency for the pictures. I don’t want to have to redo the pictures because the thing didn’t come out correctly. For God’s sake…

I’m not an artist.

I don’t have time to twaddle with the pictures. It’s giving me a headache. But but…I’m too much of a perfectionist to let go of it just like that. So you know what? I’m going to be stuck here until I get these things right. I haven’t eaten dinner, I am starting to get a sore throat, and I just realised I’m thirsty.

The things I do for my blog.

Christ…at what point did I become a design whore?

Don’t answer that question…
